Give me back my camel

An Ethiopian leader attacked Mecca with the aim of destroying the Ka'ba. Prophet Muhammad's grandfather, Abdul Mutallib, went to the leader. The leader had stopped his army outside the city.

"Give me back my camel." Said Abdul Mutallib.

"You are worried about your camel, but not about the Ka'ba?" Said the leader.

"I am the master of the camel, but the House (The Ka'ba) has its own Master who will protect it!"
